3. Now we’ll put both the plant and animal cell into Solution C, which, because it contains no solutesat all, is HYPOTONICto the cytoplasm of both cells. WATER will enter both cells through osmosis. The animal celllikely to BURST,unfortunately. The plant cell, however, is protected from this because of the presence of its CELL WALL. Refer to the U-tube pictures above when answering the questions below. 1.Why did the number of water molecules on each side of the membrane change, whereas the number of sugar molecules stayed the same? is
2.How does the plasma membrane of a cell compare with the membrane in the U-shaped tube?
